Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time for another Tuesday Tea with Twiddler’s Nook over on the Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog. I was recently gifted some incredible caffeinated products from Hero Arts from a very generous friend and I’m obsessed with it all! This was the My Monthly Hero kit from August 2018, so maybe you have it in your stash and can bring it out to new light.
As soon as I laid my eyes on this die I knew I had to try it in black and white and I love them both! Such different effects by just changing a simple color of cardstock, always amazes me.
For this black one, I blended distress oxides in tattered rose, ripened perssimon and fired brick on an A2 panel. I spritzed it with water and flicked gold watercolor all over it. Once that was dry, I grabbed a sentiment from the stamp set and inked it up with VersaFine onyx black ink, using my die cut panel as a guide. Then I added foam squares and strips to the back of the die cut panel and adhered them together. I used liquid glue to attach the whole thing to a card base and, voila, it’s all done.
For this second panel, I used cracked pistachio, broken china and wilted violet distress oxides on the background panel. Then after spritzing water, I flicked a pearl watercolor over the whole panel. It gives a great shimmer in the light. I used my die cut panel for a guide again and stamped another sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit. Adding the same foam squares and strips to the back I popped the panel in place and adhered this to a card base.
If you’ve followed me for long, you know I love getting messy in the craft room so these cards were extra fun! My fingers are always rainbow when I’m finished and it just makes me smile. I hope you found a little inspiration to create something wonderful.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
